Coutinho Urged Barcelona to Sign £180,000 a-week Liverpool star

By Admin Barcelona are actively looking to sign a replacement for ageing Luis Suarez and have identified Liverpool striker Roberto Firmino as the perfect replacement. The Uruguayan’s goal tally has fallen in each of the last two years, while he only has three goals in 11 matches in all competitions this campaign. Luiz Suarez will turn 32 in January, and El Chiringuito de Jugones reports that the Catalan giants have made finding an heir their top priority, with Firmino number one on their list. There are concerns over the physical ability as he enters the twilight of his career, but Brazil No.9 aggressive pressing and work rate is seen as a big step up. The Liverpool ace would be an ideal foil for Lionel Messi, while he has already been given a glowing recommendation from former teammate Philippe Coutinho. Barca’s chiefs intend to use the same approach that convinced playmaker to leave Anfield on Roberto Firmino and have already begun putting steps in place to sign the frontman. However, unlike the Coutinho case, Spanish champions do not think they are in a position to sign Selecao star in winter and will instead wait until next summer to mount their chase. The key man of the Reds team enjoyed …read more

La Liga Giants Ready to Make Shock Move For Liverpool Defensive Rock

By Admin La Liga title holders Barcelona are reportedly preparing a January move for Liverpool centre-back Dejan Lovren as the Spanish giants are understood to be in the market for a new centre-back because of Samuel Umtiti, and Thomas Vermaelen’s injuries and both are facing extended spells on the sidelines. Ajax’s rising star Matthijs de Ligt, Tottenham Hotspur’s defensive rock Toby Alderweireld and Zenit St Petersburg’s Branislav Ivanovic have all been linked with mid-season switches to Camp Nou. However, as Mundo Deportivo is reporting, the Catalan outfit have now set their sights on the World Cup finalist, who impressed in Croatia’s run to the final of the tournament in Russia and could be available in early 2019.

Premier League: 10 things to look out for this weekend

By Michael Butler, Sachin Nakrani, Nick Miller and Simon Burnton José Mourinho will want to make a point at Stamford Bridge while Chris Hughton returns to a chaotic St James’s Park In Manchester United’s last match, against Newcastle, José Mourinho demonstrated some of the audacity with which he made his name. He made a tactical substitution after 19 minutes, swinging a game his team was already losing 2-0 back in his side’s favour. Two of the three goals United scored came from his substitutes. It was an impressive demonstration of a coach’s ability to affect a match, the only shame being that the transformation was made necessary by the appalling performance of his starting XI. United are still some way from convincing anyone of their outstanding quality, with the best team they have beaten so far ninth-placed Watford. If they are to set a new marker in the Saturday lunchtime kick-off against Chelsea, Mourinho will have to demonstrate his tactical astuteness again – only without the woeful opening this time.
